“an island in the Pacific....
While the world is paying attention to theatrical battles over President Trumps executive orders and cabinet nominees, a largely unnoticed and potentially landmark case sits before the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. A petition for a writ of mandamus seeking to nullify the results of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election sits on the SCOTUS docket.

A petition for a writ of mandamus is a filing imploring a Court to take mandatory action in the nature of public duty. The writ filed Jan 18, 2017 by Diane Blumstein, Donna Soodalter-Toman, and Nancy Goodman has been assigned docket number 16-907.

The main argument for the writ is that, per Article IV 4 of the U.S. Constitution, it is the job of the federal government to keep U.S. territory safe from foreign invasion. The Constitution stipulates, The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion. The petition cites evidence of such an invasion, namely the Russian hacking, and asks that the entire 2016 election be nullified, all the way back to the primaries, on the grounds that cyber-territory in the U.S. was invaded with the intention of altering the results of our Presidential election. The petitioners seek an entirely new election.

Per Title 28 of the U.S. Code 1251, SCOTUS has original jurisdiction over cases like this due to the involvement of a foreign state. There is no remedy for the foreign cyber-invasion, they argue, other than complete nullification.

No. 16-907

In Re Diane Blumstein, et al., Petitioners v.

Still lyin' after three weeks.

Today's propaganda effort was devoted to assuring American citizens that our national elections are, in fact, almost unimaginably corrupted. This is being done, by members of the new leader's team, for two reasons. The first is because their boss lost the popular vote and, because he is an unstable and easily infuriated little man-child, will tolerate no explanation other than invisible foul play. The second is as propaganda effort; the white nationalist elements of Trump's staffers and cabinet have a plan to widely roll back the rights of non-white voters in this nation.

If that requires falsely telling Americans that their own election system has been, all this time, so corrupt that they were foolish to ever trust the results, then that is what a traitor to his nation Stephen Miller will appear on television to do.

White House's Stephen Miller Doubles Down on Voter Fraud Claim, But Gives No Evidence

During a tense interview Sunday on ABC's This Week, host George Stephanopolous asked Miller to provide evidence of voter fraud after Trump falsely alleged last week that he would have won New Hampshire during the election if "thousands of people hadn't been bused in to illegally vote."
Anyone whos worked in New Hampshire politics is aware of this," Miller said, who insisted that the White House has provided "enormous evidence" of voter fraud, citing the massive numbers of non-citizens in this country who are registered to vote.


The White House has provided no evidence of voter fraud whatsoever. It is a lie. The White House pointed to studies which showed no such thing. The White House claimed that somehow thousands of invisible people travelled on invisible buses to out-of-state polling places where compliant polling workers for some reason allowed them all to vote despite their names not being on the rolls to begin with and that even as "three to five million" similarly nation-breaking scams flooded over the country on election day, not one official anywhere in America was able to discover the scheme or catch even so much as one person involved with it.

"For the record, you have provided zero evidence that the president was the victim of massive voter fraud in New Hampshire," Stephanopoulos said at the end of the interview. "You have provided zero evidence of the president's claim that he would have won the popular vote if 3-to-5 million illegal immigrants hadn't voted. Zero evidence for either one of those claims.

Congratulations Stephen Miller- on representing me this morning on the various Sunday morning shows. Great job!

“an island in the Pacific....
Still lyin' after three weeks II

STEPHANOPOULOS: Let me move on, though, to the question of voter fraud as well. President Trump again this week suggested in a meeting with senators that thousands of illegal voters were bused from Massachusetts to New Hampshire and thats what caused his defeat in the state of New Hampshire, also the defeat of Senator Kelly Ayotte.

That has provoked a response from a member of the Federal Election Commission, Ellen Weintraub, who says, I call upon the president to immediately share New Hampshire voter fraud evidence so that his allegations may be investigated promptly.

Do you have that evidence?

MILLER: I have actually, having worked before on a campaign in New Hampshire, I can tell you that this issue of busing voters into New Hampshire is widely known by anyone whos worked in New Hampshire politics. Its very real. Its very serious. This morning, on this show, is not the venue for me to lay out all the evidence.


This is false. PolitiFact New Hampshire in November gave the states governor, Chris Sununu, a Pants on Fire for claiming that voters were bused in and Sununu quickly retreated from his comment. New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner said voter fraud was not widespread problem, largely because the law requires voters to show a valid identification at the polls. If an ID is lacking, the voters photo is taken, they have to sign an affidavit affirming their identify and then state officials follow up.

MILLER: But I can tell you this, voter fraud is a serious problem in this country. You have millions of people who are registered in two states or who are dead who are registered to vote. And you have 14 percent of noncitizens, according to academic research, at a minimum, are registered to vote, which is an astonishing statistic.

A 2012 Pew Center on the States study found problems with inaccurate voter registrations, people who registered in more than one state (which could happen if the voter moves and registers in the new state without telling the former state) and deceased voters whose information was still on the voter rolls. But the primary author of the Pew report tweeted in response to Trumps staffs claim that he can confirm that report made no findings re: voter fraud.

As to the 14 percent figure stemming from research by Old Dominion University professors, using data from 2008 and 2010 that also has been misrepresented by Trump and his staff. They have ignored updates and challenges to the research. The researchers have also warned that it is impossible to tell for certain whether the noncitizens who responded to the survey were representative of the broader population of noncitizens.

STEPHANOPOULOS: You cant make a hold on a second. You just claimed again that there was illegal voting in New Hampshire, people bused in from the state of Massachusetts. Do you have any evidence to back that up?

MILLER: Im saying anybody George, go to New Hampshire. Talk to anybody who has worked in politics there for a long time. Everybody is aware of the problem in New Hampshire with respect to

STEPHANOPOULOS: Im asking you as the White House senior hold on a second. Im asking you as the White House senior policy adviser. The president made a statement, saying he was the victim of voter fraud, people are being bused from

MILLER: And the president the president the president was.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Do you have any evidence?

MILLER: If this is an issue that interests you, then we can talk about it more in the future. And we now have our governance is beginning to get stood up. But we have a Department of Justice and we have more officials.


An issue of voter fraud is something were going to be looking at very seriously and very hard.

But the reality is, is that we know for a fact, you have massive numbers of noncitizens registered to vote in this country. Nobody disputes that.

False. As shown above, this is disputed even by the researcher whose work is being cited by Miller: There has been a tendency to misread our results as proof of massive voter fraud, which we dont think they are.

MILLER: And many, many highly qualified people, like Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, have looked deeply into this issue and have confirmed it to be true and have put together evidence.

And I suggest you invite Kris Kobach onto your show and he can walk you through some of the evidence of voter fraud in greater detail.

Miller mentioned Kobach, but the latters efforts at proving voter fraud have been mocked in Kansas.

In a scathing editorial titled Kris Kobach is a big fraud on Kansas voter fraud, the Kansas City Star accused the publicity-seeking Kansas secretary of state of throwing out wild claims and wasting taxpayer funds as part of loathsome attacks on U.S. immigration policy.

State Rep. John Carmichael noted that Kobach has not brought a single case against a noncitizen for voting illegally. All of the cases he has brought concern U.S. citizens accused of voting in more than one state.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Just for the record, you have provided absolutely no evidence. The presidents made a statement.

MILLER: The White House has provided enormous evidence with respect to voter fraud, with respect to people being registered in more than one state, dead people voting, noncitizens being registered to vote. George, it is a fact and you will not deny it, that there are massive numbers of noncitizens in this country who are registered to vote. That is a scandal.


As noted, the enormous evidence has been repeatedly debunked.

MILLER: We should stop the presses. And, as a country, we should be aghast about the fact that you have people who have no right to vote in this country registered to vote, canceling out the franchise of lawful citizens of this country.

Thats the story we should be talking about. And Im prepared to go on any show, anywhere, anytime, and repeat it and say the president of the United States is correct 100 percent.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, you just repeated, though, you just made those declarations. But, for the record, you have provided zero evidence that the president was the victim of massive voter fraud in New Hampshire. You provided zero evidence that the presidents claim that he would have won the general the popular vote if 3 million to 5 million illegal immigrants hadnt voted, zero evidence for either one of those claims.

Its pretty shameless to cite research in a way that even the researcher says is inappropriate, and yet Miller keeps saying 14 percent of noncitizens are registered to vote. The Republican governor of New Hampshire has admitted that he was wrong to say buses of illegal voters voted in the election, and yet Miller shamelessly suggests that is the case. Miller cites a supposed expert on voter fraud, Kobach, who has been mocked for failing to prove his own claims of voter fraud. Miller also repeats a claim about people being registered to vote in two states, even though that is not an example of voter fraud.

Miller earns Four Pinocchios over and over again.

The Spy Revolt Against Trump Begins

Our Intelligence Community is so worried by the unprecedented problems of the Trump administrationnot only do senior officials possess troubling ties to the Kremlin, there are nagging questions about basic competence regarding Team Trumpthat it is beginning to withhold intelligence from a White House which our spies do not trust.

Whats going on was explained lucidly by a senior Pentagon intelligence official, who stated that since January 20, weve assumed that the Kremlin has ears inside the SITROOM, meaning the White House Situation Room, the 5,500 square-foot conference room in the West Wing where the president and his top staffers get intelligence briefings. Theres not much the Russians dont know at this point, the official added in wry frustration.

Flynn resigns amid controversy over Russia contacts

The sudden exit marks the most public display yet of disarray at the highest levels of the new administration, which has faced repeated questions over a slew of controversies and reports of infighting among senior aides during its first three weeks.

The controversy intensified after the report put Pence and several senior White House advisers in an uncomfortable position, as they had denied in TV interviews weeks earlier that Flynn discussed sanctions with the ambassador. Some administration officials said Flynn must have misled Pence and others.

“an island in the Pacific....
A letter from mental health professionals, including fifteen psychiatrists, concerning the popular vote loser's mental health.

To The Editors of the New York Times

To the Editor:

Charles M. Blow (column, nytimes.com, Feb. 9) describes Donald Trumps constant need to grind the opposition underfoot. As mental health professionals, we share Mr. Blows concern.

Silence from the countrys mental health organizations has been due to a self-imposed dictum about evaluating public figures (the American Psychiatric Associations 1973 Goldwater Rule). But this silence has resulted in a failure to lend our expertise to worried journalists and members of Congress at this critical time. We fear that too much is at stake to be silent any longer.

Mr. Trumps speech and actions demonstrate an inability to tolerate views different from his own, leading to rage reactions. His words and behavior suggest a profound inability to empathize. Individuals with these traits distort reality to suit their psychological state, attacking facts and those who convey them (journalists, scientists).

In a powerful leader, these attacks are likely to increase, as his personal myth of greatness appears to be confirmed. We believe that the grave emotional instability indicated by Mr. Trumps speech and actions makes him incapable of serving safely as president.

Lyin' basterds.

In a remarkable interview, Kellyanne Conways spin about Mike Flynn crashes and burns

The White House appears to have let its repeated false statements about Flynn stand for weeks after that notification from Yates, and has yet to account for what it did with the warning she conveyed. The disclosures about Flynn have added to the swirling suspicion about the Trump administrations relationship with Moscow suspicion based in part on Trumps repeated expressions of admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

While Trump scandals mount, Chaffetz decides to investigate... a cartoon character

Chaffetz, after his unending probes of the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton, hasnt shown any appetite to examine, say, the Trump administrations ties to Russia or its many conflicts of interest. But the chairman has shown determination to probe, without fear or favor, the threat to America posed by Sid the Science Kid.

Chaffetz did say Conways Fox News infomercial was wrong, wrong, wrong. Maybe hell have a hearing on the matter once he dispenses with Sid the Science Kid and the rest of the late Hensons empire. Many unanswered questions remain for Chaffetz to probe:

Does Snuffleupagus really exist?

Are Ernie and Bert just friends?

Does Cookie Monster floss?

Is the Count a vampire?

Does Mr. Noodle know how to talk?

What happened to Big Birds parents?

And: Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?


These are important questions. Maybe Schwantz has the answers.

No surprise here.

Neo-Nazis blame the Jews for Michael Flynns resignation

Neo-Nazi writers are upset that retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has resigned from his position as national security adviser. The anti-Semites are lionizing Flynn as one of our best guys and a true patriot who has been quite critical of the Jews in the past.

The disgraced former national security adviser has repeatedly pushed toxic views. Last July, Flynn shared a tweet that read in part, Not anymore, Jews. Not Anymore. Flynn also endorsed the work of racist author Mike Cernovich, who has frequently pushed white nationalist themes on his Twitter account.

The Daily Stormer is a neo-Nazi website that worships Adolf Hitler, posts defenses of the Holocaust, and attacks Jewish people as kikes. Editor Andrew Anglin wrote that Flynns resignation is dumb. Team Trump shouldnt give these people an inch. Flynn is one of our best guys. And he did nothing wrong.

Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence

American law enforcement and intelligence agencies intercepted the communications around the same time they were discovering evidence that Russia was trying to disrupt the presidential election by hacking into the Democratic National Committee, three of the officials said. The intelligence agencies then sought to learn whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on the hacking or other efforts to influence the election.

Ignorance Is Strength

When I travel to Asia, Im fairly often met at the airport by someone holding a sign reading Mr. Paul. Why? In much of Asia, names are given family first, personal second at home, the prime minister of Japan is referred to as Abe Shinzo. And the mistake is completely forgivable when its made by a taxi driver picking up a professor.

Its not so forgivable, however, if the president of the United States makes the same mistake when welcoming the leader of one of our most important economic and security partners. But there it was: Donald Trump referring to Mr. Abe as, yes, Prime Minister Shinzo.

Mr. Abe did not, as far as we know, respond by calling his host President Donald.

Trivial? Well, it would be if it were an isolated instance.

The legal expert Benjamin Wittes described the infamous executive order on refugees as malevolence tempered by incompetence, and noted that the order reads as if it was not reviewed by competent counsel at all.

The president continues to rely on a chief adviser who, suspicious closeness to the Kremlin aside, appears to get his strategic information from right-wing conspiracy theorists.

Hearings for Betsy DeVos, the education secretary, revealed her to be completely ignorant about even the most elementary issues.

Before the Abe flub, the official agenda for the state visit by Theresa May, the British prime minister, repeatedly misspelled her name.

The Council of Economic Advisers, which is supposed to provide technical expertise, has been demoted from cabinet rank, but that hardly matters, since nobody has been nominated to serve.

Many in the GOP seem shocked to learn that repealing any major part of Obamacare will cause tens of millions to lose insurance.

All indications are that the people in charge have no idea what theyre doing, on any front.

But meanwhile, whos in charge? Crises happen, and we have an intellectual vacuum at the top. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Obama? seriously? The dude's been on a serious and well documented vacation since just about the day after the inauguration. I'm afraid nobody is to blame but Trump himself for this mess.

Nobody is making him sign executive orders that flaunt with the constitution

Nobody is making him sign executive orders that he hasn't even read.

Nobody is making the Whitehouse officials issue wildly conflicting statements four times just hours apart from each statement.

Nobody is making his administration post different copies of executive orders to the White House website that are different from what was legally submitted.

Nobody is making them release executive orders without a thorough review with the responsible departments and building an action plan for implementation.

Nobody is making him and his staff toy with direct and obvious conflict of interest issues hocking wares and personal business dealings on multiple occasions.

Nobody is making Trump attack the US intelligence people that are talking about his Russian ties instead of simply talk about the non-existence of his ties and stop doing things that give the appearance of Russian ties (like standing up for Russia repeatedly... or carrying on a completely different approach than the harsh language he directed at Obama for his reaction to a similar Russian fly-by last September).

No democrat made Flynn have documented discussions with Russians about sanctions before he was in office.

I could go on...but my point is, you don't have to be left or right to see that this administration is not off to a great start of their own volition. You're really going to have to lay out a detailed case that this is somebody elses fault.

And let me remind you, we're only in week 4 of 208!
